The ban for “The Edgar” haircut at El Paso, TX high school has been rejected

In 2021 an El Paso, TX high school attempted to ban “The Edgar” haircut because it was distracting in classrooms. The ban has been rejected.

An Edgar haircut is gaining more popularity these days and for a good reason. While it is short and easy to maintain, it gives your appearance plenty of edge and character. Being especially flattering for oval, oblong, and pointy face shapes, it is a great way to take your short haircut to a whole new level of boldness. Moreover, it allows you to mask any unevenness in your hairline should you have any. To learn more about this awesome Latina haircut keep on reading.

An Edgar haircut is a Mexican take on a Caesar hair cut. Originally sported by Latina boys, it has soon become incredibly popular worldwide. It is one of those short haircuts for men that involve more hair in the front with the top being shortly trimmed while the sides and the back are faded, tapered or undercut. The front section of the hair, which is also referred to as a fringe or bangs, is generally styled so that it covers your forehead partially.

As a millennial, I usually don’t share memes or internet shenanigans with my parents. But while scrolling Facebook recently, I saw a post I knew would amuse my dad. It was a picture of a young man with incredibly short bangs, barely past his hairline, trimmed straight across his forehead. My dad immediately wheezed, recognizing the "ridiculous" (his words) hairstyle associated with San Antonio’s Marbach area.

I don’t remember the exact caption, but the post was essentially poking fun at just that: men who have a certain reputation and are known to hold stakes along the busy Far Westside road. Anyone with enough San Antonio connections on their social media accounts have no doubt seen similar memes and posts on their own feeds. If Marbach isn’t specifically named, then there’s probably some mention of “Edgar” or “takuache,” the agreed-upon names for men with the style.

In actuality, there’s a good chance that "the Edgar” is actually rooted in indigenous culture. San Antonio locals usually assume that anyone with this cut is, to put it nicely, tacky, hence all the low blows. The Indian Problem, a Facebook page dedicated to educating people about indigenous cultures, points out that the “Edgar” style is actually similar to that of Native males centuries ago.

Men of the Jumano tribe, which was most dominant in Texas, New Mexico, and Mexico between 1500 and 1700, wore their hair in a way almost identical to the “Edgar.” As is the case for many indigenous cultures, many Jumano men also decorated their sleek, straight hair with paint or left one section long so they could attach bird feathers.

Within Texas, the Jumanos primarily lived between El Paso, Austin, and the Rio Grande. The tribe changed over time in the face of technological advancement and colonization, especially since the Jumanos played an active role as mediators between the Spanish and other tribes, including the Apaches, which largely absorbed the Jumanos in the 18th century. Other members of the Jumanos are said to have eventually assimilated into Mexican culture.
